How To Take The Perfect Detox Bath

How To Take A Perfect Detox Bath

Baths are amazing. They’re an easy way to sink into a state of relaxation, unwind and restore your body after all the stress of the day. With a few added boosts from natural ingredients, a regular bath can become something even better: A detox bath.

I know what you’re thinking: I barely have time for a shower, let alone a super-fancy bath! But trust me, taking some time for a detox bath is absolutely worth it.

Think about it: Your body’s pores are dealing with toxins all day, even if you’re not exercising.Sweating is one way of releasing your body from potentially harmful toxins, and detox baths are one way of sweating out toxins while not potentially exposing your body to harmful elements. The process behinds these baths is a version of osmosis. That basically means that toxins are first drawn to the surface of the skin by the bath’s hot water and then cleansed away as the water cools.

In addition to cleansing the body of toxins, a detox bath helps with overall regulation of the body’s processes. Some baths can help regulate the activity of enzymes, while others helpalleviate pain and aid the healing process for those with non-ideal pH levels. Certain detox baths can help with excessive body odor! There things are amazing.

Here’s how you can take the perfect detox bath in your own home:

1. Make sure you are properly hydrated.

A detoxing bath is supposed to be intense, drawing out all sorts of impurities from your body. Making sure you’re well hydrated beforehand will help prevent any unintentional damage to your body during the process.

2. Fill up a very hot bath.

Fill up the tub as much as you can, with the water as hot as you can stand it. This will help the bath be most effective in drawing out toxins.

3. Fill the tub with the active ingredients.

There are many recipes out there for detox baths. It’s up to you to decide what ingredients you’d like to add. This will determine what benefits your body will enjoy from the bath.

Most detox bath recipes contain at least one “harsh” ingredient that actively draws out the toxins. They’re things that you wouldn’t normally think of as bath ingredients, such as bentonite clay, apple cider vinegar, baking soda, or even hydrogen peroxide. They’re balanced out by “soothing” ingredients that lend other benefits. Think ginger, seaweed and (my favorite)essential oils.

4. Sink in and STAY in.

Follow the suggestions of your specific individual detox bath recipe. But it’s typically advised that you stay in your detox bath for at least twenty minutes. You have to give the ingredients time to work on your skin!

5. Dry off and treat your skin gently.

Be very careful getting out of the bath when your time is up. Your body’s just been through a lot. Take time to drink water and let your body recover. You can brush your body down for additional detoxing benefits, but be gentle to your body in general.
